A few months ago I interviewed my friend and comrade Bojana Novakovic who I met this year through doing online organizing with a group of Serbian diaspora. This was the kind of instant friendship which happens when two people are exactly similar enough in beliefs and interests, but also totally different in approach. It was both our same-ness and our opposite-ness that made us such wonderful friends and collaborators throughout this crazy year! I'm very pleased to share our conversation with...

This week I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with my good friend Ryan Miller, who I've known since high school. Ryan is a screenwriter and musician, and also an actual elf - he works for a Christmas company spreading holiday cheer and getting creative with how we tell the story of Christmas in a more inclusive way. Ryan also deserves a big shoutout as one of the people who helped me craft the idea for this podcast. I am immensely grateful for our friendship and excited to have him on the...

What?!? Episode 10 already?!? Things are getting interesting here at the Common Denominator as we welcome Chris Galloway for a special podcast episode/homework assignment around a key question we've been tackling in my History and Philosophy of Co-operation course. Today I get to pick Chris' brain about his perspectives on the benefits and shortcomings of consumer co-operation to answer the question of whether consumer co-operation is the most important form of co-operation. We draw on our...

This week I am so beyond excited to reconnect with my friend Iris who lives all the way in the Netherlands! We met three years ago at an Indigenous Forestry course while she was on exchange at UBC, and right away we knew it was the beginning of a magical friendship! On this week's episode, we talk about Iris's passion for cycling and how she's combining that with her interest in conservation and social inclusion. Join us as we bike to the future with Iris van Hal on The Common Denominator!

This week I am joined by a super special guest – my best friend, life partner, and comrade Mario Cimet – for an in-depth discussion about the economics of the overdose crisis, it’s root causes, and it’s relationship with neoliberalism and the incentive structures of global free market capitalism. We take a look at how both illicit and regulated drug markets respond to the kinds of constraints created by prohibition, and why drugs like fentanyl have become so deadly and widespread. We...

A discussion about authenticity, practicality, idealism and what drives the co-op movement. What vision and values are driving the co-operative movement today and how are we putting those into practice? This week I got to chat with my good friend and fellow co-op nerd Maggie Miland about the “existential questions” at the heart of the co-op movement today, which parallel the kinds of questions that have been central to the co-operative movement since it’s early beginnings. Maggie is the...

Extremist organizations and far-right groups have become more pervasive, more vocal, and more organized in the past few decades. This is happening all around the world, but particularly in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. A few weeks ago I had the chance to talk with Marina Lažetić, an extremism and migration researcher at Tufts University, about her experiences studying and learning about right-wing organizing in Europe with a focus in our shared home region of the Balkans. Put on your...

This week I had a hell of a time interviewing my good friend Jay, who is a cornerstone of the Eastside Boxing Club community, a killer DJ, and an all-around badass human being that I really look up to. After indulging in some delicious chocolate-dipped, Skor-bar covered ice cream from Yum, we cut right to the chase talking about "shit that's fucked" and our individual acts of resistance and reclamation of identity. Plus, we welcome two special guests: Brian (Jay's concussion brain),...
